Song of the day: Moving Units/"Going for Adds"

I could go on all day about the LA-based discopunk band Moving Units, one of my favorite finds last year. My friend Hill first turned me onto them last winter, and having seen them twice at last year's South by Southwest music festival, I counted myself a fan. Onstage, the band is manically energetic, with angular guitar, loping bass and drums beaten far beyond reason. They're a joy to watch.

At first, the only release available was their self-titled EP, with the excellent songs "Between Us and Them" and "I Am." All summer long and into the fall, I waited for their album to come out, and when it did, I played it non-stop for weeks. My favorite song on that album, at least today, is the infectious "Going for Adds." Enjoy!
